Four Quick Questions
What are the advantages of using the ASP.NET framework?
It totally divorces the interface files with the backend files. It allows for a maximum amount of control over design from a designer’s perspective. From a developers perspective, it is very flexible when it comes to rapid prototyping and that makes my job much easier.
What’s your process to architecting a web application?
The process is similar to the design process, except you have to be listening for themes of data and associations of data elements. You have to think about detailed information in an abstract way.
What is your dream sailing trip?
I would love to take six months to a year going down the Caribbean chain on my own personal sailboat with a high speed satellite and a bunch of cats!
How many cats is too many cats?
That answer is simple. There can never be too many cats!
